Johns Hopkins is a community committed to sharing values of diversity and inclusion in order to achieve and sustain excellence. We firmly believe that we can best promote excellence by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff and by creating a climate of respect that is supportive of their success.
This climate for diversity, inclusion, and excellence is critical to attaining the best research, scholarship, teaching, health care, and other strategic goals of the Health System and the University. Taken together these values are recognized and supported fully by the Johns Hopkins Institutions leadership at all levels. Further, we recognize that the responsibility for excellence, diversity, and inclusion lies with all of us at the Institutions: leadership, administration, faculty, staff, and students.

As the first American research university, Johns Hopkins University has a long history of training the best and brightest scholars, scientists, and innovators who impact their local and global communities. You are about to embark upon a remarkable intellectual and social experience as you pursue your studies.
The number of Johns Hopkins undergraduate students identifying as underrepresented minorities (URM) in the incoming class increased from 12 to 23 percent, since 2009, and TBA percent in graduate programs. Once students arrive on campus, they can take part in various programs to find their place, adjust to college life, develop leadership skills, network with other first-generation students or underrepresented students in medical professions, and more.
Many of these programs are offered through the Homewood Centers for Community, Diversity & Inclusion, especially the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Student Disability Services, and the Center for Student Success.
